Power Rankings: Patriots up to No. 8

By Field Yates

NFL Power Rankings
After narrowly escaping with a Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills, the Patriots have moved up one spot in ESPN.com's weekly Power Rankings, climbing to No. 8 on the list.

The Patriots remain the fourth-best AFC team according to the panel of voters, trailing Houston (1st), Baltimore (5th) and Denver (7th). The Patriots are one of four AFC teams with a 6-3 record, including Denver, Pittsburgh and their Week 11 opponent the Indianapolis Colts.

Beyond Indianapolis, the Patriots have remaining home games with both Houston and San Francisco, who checked in 4th in the latest power ranking poll.

We put the question out to you: how do you feel about the Patriots ranking this week? Too high? Too low? Or just about right?
